Seeing as it is that Ryanair has a very comprehensive network of intra-European flights, should their next move be an expansion of domestic services within large countries such as the UK, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, similar to what they've been doing lately in Italy and Spain?

There are numerous opportunities for FR both internationally and domestically within certain countries. I'm sure in the next few years we will see increased domestic service in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Scandinavia, etc, where FR believes there are opportunities to stimulate demand and profits to be made. Take, for example, FR's recently announced first domestic route in Portugal: OPO-FAO. Of course, routes might not all work – for example, LPL-ABZ/INV and EMA-INV have ceased, likewise PIK-BOH (with 128,961 passengers in 2008, up 37% over 2007, it nicely illustrates that volume alone doesn't mean success) - but it is good that it is entrepreneurial in seeking new opportunities and appropriately cuts the route if it doesn’t perform sufficiently within a particular space of time. Let’s hope, though, it doesn’t restart DUB-SNN!   Sense needs to also be applied!
